A month ago I mentioned this free download about Lent and had big dreams about 40 days of focusing with my family. Well, a week ago I sat down, looked at the list for the first time and chose 26 items to help build anticipation for Easter, appreciation for what Jesus’ did for us on the cross and stress the miracle of the Resurrection. I figured we would start the morning after St. Patrick’s Day (when Shamrocks were out of their system from so many school crafts) and go from there.
My kids are SUPER visual so it gave me an opportunity to be crafty. A lady came through my line at work and bought a white flower pot. She told me that she was going to take a limb and paint it white and make “Easter Trees” for some families with children. I had already made the countdown circles during lunch that day and was looking for a way to hang them. Ta DA! The answer came from this customer!
The third day was a butterfly craft using coffee filters, markers, and a spray bottle. It went surprising well considering my little brood’s needs. I don’t have a picture of the finished product but let’s just say you can’t tell mine from theirs’ and they ALL look adorable.
